Putting On The Finishing Touches

Judy was successful at L. L. Bean’s yesterday afternoon and was able to get herself a free pair of shorts with the “Bean Bucks” (coupons) that we get by using our L. L. Bean Visa credit card.  Also, she finalized the fabric selection for the baby mat so we’ll go to Jo Ann Fabrics this morning and make that purchase.  I need to go to PTB (Pete The Barber) this morning to get my ears lowered.  Later this afternoon we’ll gather at Peggio’s Kitchen for some of chef Mikee’s BBQ as well as Martini Time.   So, we are putting the finishing touches on our 2012 Maine visit; it will be “On the Road Again” tomorrow morning.

Here’s something a little different.  While we were kicking around Freeport yesterday afternoon, we came across this “Bootmobile”; hope you get a kick out of it.  Here’s a little history, “In 1911, an avid outdoorsman named Leon Leonwood ("L.L.") Bean returned from a hunting trip with cold, damp feet and a revolutionary idea. L.L. enlisted a local cobbler to stitch leather uppers to workmen's rubber boots, creating a comfortable, functional boot for exploring the Maine woods. This innovative boot - the Maine Hunting Shoe - changed outdoor footwear forever and began one of the most successful family-run businesses in the country.” (taken from L.L.Bean website)


Hope You Have A Great Day and May God Bless  - - - - - - - -
